Jaguars claim long snapper, is Jeremy Cain on the bubble?

USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed long snapper Luke Ingram off waivers on Thursday afternoon. Ingram was originally signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent, but was released on Wednesday. With the addition of Ingram, the Jaguars now have a total of three long snappers on the roster, including veteran Jeremy Cain and rookie Carson Tinker.

Cain's roster spot seems to appear to be in jeopardy now with the team holding three long snappers currently. It's not that Jeremy Cain hasn't been good in camp, but I haven't really paid much attention to the long snappers, but that he's a entering his eighth NFL season and is 33 years old with a base salary of $900,000.

It wouldn't be surprising at all, despite the team not being tight with the salary cap, to see the Jaguars go with someone younger at the position. Tinker is highly thought of as a long snapper, having snapped on some of the biggest stages in college football as a member of Alabama without any issues.

The team certainly won't hold on to three long snappers for very long.
